Question: How do I order some of your delicious bagels?
Answer: Orders should be submitted on our order page. Please order them at least a day in advance so we can prepare the ingredients. Each morning, we only cook bagels that are ordered to ensure the freshest bagel possible and reduce food waste. We look forward to sharing our love of bagels with you!
Q: When can I get some of your bagels?
A: We are currently offering pre-orders. We do not have a physical store but retail partners around Knoxville carry some of our flavors. Check them out to get your bagel fix + coffee !
Q: When do I pickup my order?
A: Between 8-9am on the date of your order.

Q: Why do the bagels have different uneven shapes?
A: Each bagel is handmade so they might have different physical shapes but don't worry they all contain the same delicious ingredients.
Q: Are the bagels kosher?
A: Our bagels are kosher pareve but not certified kosher.
Q: Are the bagels vegan?
A: Our bagels can be made vegan when requested. When you place your order, include a note in the order form and we will make sure to skip the egg wash done after the bagels are baked. Of course, the flavors with bacon and cheese are not vegan.
Q: Can I freeze the bagels?
A: Yes - the bagels can be frozen and enjoyed later. Whenever you are ready, pop them in the toaster or oven to warm them up to your preferred temperature. We recommend 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes (varies by oven and your preference). More tips can be found here.
Q: Is there anyway to get bagels without ordering in advance?
Depending on the daily orders, sometimes there are extra bagels when making a batch. We call these extra bagels our "baker's share." You can also stop by one of our retail partners.
